Norton in the Raj

I sent this image to the ever great Vintage Norton blog a while back so it has been published before but I like it a lot and now seems like a good time to give it another airing.

The photo is taken somewhere in colonial British India, the swagger and outfits of the two lads are great. That's quite the jaunty angle on his pith helmet! What draws me to the photo however is the Norton in the background that could very easily be my own bike. I imported a 1930 Model 19 from India about 15 years ago. To my shame the restoration is not yet completed, though close.
